Posted by Admin On 10:36 AM

As West Indies scan the wreckage of their embarrassing loss against India, the company looks to give their key players some rest before the Test series start. For the West Indies, it is about retrieval the pride which lies in tatters after three uncomforting losses.

Captain Darren Sammy has struggled to explain just why his players are finding it tough in home circumstances against an opposition which is with no its top stars. He has been vocal in his censure of the obvious lack of request by his players.

Sammy answerable the lack of killer instinct as one of the reasons for the team not being able to win. He admitted that the batsmen haven't been drama up to the mark and he predictable a bit more from fast bowler Kemar Roach.We have not been getting runs at the top. We just lacked the final touch. About our bowling, Kemar is one of our strike bowlers and we wanted a bit extra from him. But I can't blame anyone; he has been doing a good job over the past months. If you put the ball in the right areas, you could reap rewards on this wicket, Sammy said.

An invincible 3-0 lead in hand, India would now aim for a clean sweep while trying out new players when they take on a demoralized West Indies side in the unimportant fourth game of their five-match one-day global series, here tomorrow.

Led by Suresh Raina, the second-string Indian team has given a good account of itself dominating the struggling Caribbean side, which has been damaged further by the nonattendance of big-hitting Chris Gayle and reliable performer such as Dwayne Bravo. In fact, the series has done a world of good to young Indian players such as Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Raina himself.

They have proved themselves as fighters when faced with tense situations, prompt Coach Duncan Fletcher to state that the given pool of talent, his wards are set to control world cricket for another decade or so.It is due to the quantity of talent India have. Indian cricket is in a very, very healthy state at present,stated Fletcher after India clinches the series with a three-wicket wins the past.

Right-handed batsman Manoj Tiwary might get a look in after Raina hinted that reserve players are likely to be fielded for the remaining two matches. But bowling would certainly be an area of concern for the Indians. Without the ever-reliable Zaheer Khan, who won't be accessible even for the Test series due to wound, the pacers led by Munaf Patel have struggled as was evident from the way West Indian number nine Andre Russell took them to the cleaners on Saturday.
